Take me Apart

Tickle my toes

Lap over my feet

Lick up my shins

Burn thighs with cold heat

 

Craddle my buttocks

Release all my strain

Peel back my skin

Expose all my pain

 

Dissolve my bones

Take me apart

Stop breath in my lungs

Surround my cold heart

 

Gurgle your way

Through throat and nose

Seep through closed lids

Bring life to a close

 

Quiet the mind

With your soothing song

Take me away

From sorrow too long

 

Lift me on cool, salty waves

Carry the seafoam, the debris

The driftwood

And me
